  1. Wow congrats julie anne.. kaso dikita bet host ng the clash...

    1. My Malaysia ICON award na cya at ngaun eto, Aliw Awards, recognized dn cya ng Spotify pero hndi prin super hit ang The Clash.hndi prin cya bet ng masa.ang daming bagong singers ng AbsCbn na hit agad sa mga viewers.or magaling lng tlaga mg-manage ng artista ang Dos.

    2. Hahaha ako nman umpisa ng may Clash , wala w akong alam masyado sa mga Reality contest ng Abs cbn.. TNT boys lang kilala ko n last n sumikat. Yung mga kasunod waleyyyyyyyyyy

    3. Hindi lang gaanong hyped si Julie pero legit ang mga awards niya. Yung sales ng album niya nag Diamond at sila Jose Mari Chan, Nina and a few lang nakagawa nun. Yung iba niya Platinum na mataas din. Awarded din si ateng at may fan base. Hype lang ang kulang. Must be because mahina GMA sa hyping or marketing.

    4. Daming award giving bodies. Kung bawat brgy magbibigay ng mga awards e me matatanggap na 42,000 awards ang isang grand slammer! At magiging basurahan na ng mga awards ang bahay niya! Hindi pa kasama mga schools at mga different organizations like mga Rotaries and Knights of Columbus ek-ek! Hahahahaha! That's why I see this award giving bodies as a Joke.

  2. Totoo ba yun, Ynez Veneracion???

    1. Cross-over award naman iyan eh. Sino pa ba ang nag-cross over?

    2. Maski ako nagulat na winner si Ynez. Talaga ba?

  3. Entertainer of the year si Regine eh puro sigaw lang naman ang ginagawa nya. Mga fans na nageenjoy sa cheap at low quality entertainment ang nagpapauto sa ganyan. Regine has zero artistry and musicality. Cheap na karaoke singer lang sa Pinas si Regine.

    1. Ang gusto kasi ng mga fans niya ay biritera na tumitili at ang sakit sa tenga. Lol

    2. She had 3 concerts ah. So why not?!

    3. e kaso c regine mayaman na, ikaw mahirap na basher pa rin.

    4. Like it or not, si Regine, may award....Kayong mga bashers, walaaa! walaaa! walaaa!

    5. Exactly! Harsh but TRUE!

    6. True. Ako, I can only take so much. Kapag sobra nang birit, nakakapagod na rin pakinggan. I stopped watching ASAP kasi isang tambak sila don na sigaw nang sigaw.

    7. Gusto mo kasi yung mga moira type na parang lasing. Kaya ko din gawin yun eh. It's the same sound. Lol

    8. Baka naman kasi yung idolet mo di kaya bumirit.

  4. Regine said that her collab with her idol was the highlight of her 30 years in the industry. Well-deserved, Songbird!

    1. Korek.. yung collab nila ni sharon ang highlight of her 30 years, NOT her aliw award. Naman, hindi ma-drama si regine sa awards achuchucu.

    2. Nakuha na ni Regine lahat ng awards. Wala na siyang dapat patunayan.

    3. Ate Reg is Ate Reg. Mas mahalaga sa kanya yung collab award with Sharon than getting the Entertainer of the Year award which is the biggest award of the event

  5. Nawala na talaga ang value ng mga awards sa Pinas. Sila sila lang naman at paulit ulit.NO GROWTH...kung sino may impluwensiya sa larangan ay nanalo!

    1. Ikaw na lang kaya ang maupong judge, sige apply na!

  6. Talaga si Ate Gay best sa Comedy Bar? Mahusay ba sya talaga ?

  7. I agree! Magagaling naman talaga sila.

  8. Ganyan talaga pag talunan. Maingay🤣🤣🤣!

  9. Eat ur hearts out bashers! Better luck next time!!!

  10. Congrats Queen Regine! Your bashers mouth be foaming while you stay winning!

  11. Lea is People's Choice?! For real? lol. Sige na nga.
